About the event

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has revolutionised the way we work and conduct business. As we continue to explore its capabilities, it has become evident that AI has the potential to greatly impact our lives, particularly with the emergence of AI chatbots such as ChatGPT. 

This workshop will provide small business owners with practical insights into leveraging AI's power while mitigating potential risks. 

By the end of this workshop, you will have an understanding of: 

  • What artificial intelligence is and its applications;
  • ​How to leverage artificial intelligence in your business; 
  • The tools you can get started with to harness the benefits of artificial intelligence; and 
  • The security risks and precautions associated with artificial intelligence. 

Join us for this engaging workshop to unlock the true potential of AI for your small business. Embrace the transformative power of AI while navigating its challenges, ultimately enabling your business to thrive in the age of intelligent technologies.
